European stock markets remain ahead



European stock markets have shrugged off the prospect of a trade war over US steel tariffs, and remain in positive territory in early afternoon trading.


London's Ftse was up 0.68%, Frankfurt's Dax rose 1% and Paris CAC was up 1.34%.


Sentiment was also helped by the formation of an Italian government, and what appears to be a resolution to the political crisis in Spain.
